I erased my old installation of OA 7.1, installed a clean copy of 7.6, and now get the Invalid Game Folder error on every single server.

that's the usual error message you get when trying to connect to a server running a different version. your client and the server hates each  other.

this is why we need a "omit servers running a different game version" in the server browser.

groan.. this hasnt been sorted out yet or considered as a potential need before this was released?

I seen with my own eyes some script which appears to be for mod use and will check q3/baseoa folders and exit with friendly warnings. This was when accidently browsing through SVN.. I dont even know what it stands for.

Isnt the exe running as 1.33 or 1.35 or something and appears on all browser info? hmm.. if so I can just do a filter for http. But with the game.. I assume thats sorted.

ok I see the master browser geezer.. do we need to go over and give him a nudge. Maybe hes on vacation this week. Anyone want a game of lazer gun n saw thing? Cheesy

This is quite annoying. Almost every server I tried to join must be running an old version. I'm tempted to revert.

Well it's nothing I can do from my end. Blame their laziness, not me!!
It's horrible because well there's no 'notification horn' for admins to update them and if I put such thing in they might have "ZOMG IT CHECKS UPDATES! I CANT POSSIBLY TRUST THIS!!! SPYWARE!!!" protests.  I'm doing the best I can to spread 0.7.6 awareness, because of how notbigtheversion number is they assume it's no problem to still run 0.7.1. Sad
And of course, most distro repositories still only have 0.6.0 or 0.7.0 (no patch).

ok, no problem - we are aware of 0.7.6


but let me make something very very clear.

0.7.1 is the current working version.

I fully agree with [TASF]Overkill, pikaunforgiven and the next time I update a server, that advice will be from Jack Thompson.

What's so not-working about 0.7.6? The 'invalid game folder' error happens with 0.7.0 when you join a 0.6.0 server too :roll:

... and a dedicated admin,  and the reason why we can enjoy many of the servers that exist on the server list. (unitl now)

But not everyone's perfect. He is not a creature in need of self-importance so sometimes seldom seen on the forum. He will be rather embarresed by this post and any kind of attention. I don't care, I've seen him play and I am quite confident I wont be gettin an ass kicking anytime soon, even with my skills. Cheesy

It's pretty much WYSIWYG.
